ONALASKA, Wis. ― Mayo Clinic Health System broke ground today at the Onalaska clinic that will expand radiology services in the region.
The $8.1 million project will add two wide-bore MRI scanners — one 3T-strength and one 1.5T-strength. The new MRIs are expected to be fully operational in early 2022.
"This exciting expansion will increase advanced imaging options for multiple specialties, including orthopedic and sports medicine, oncologic, urologic and neurologic exams," says Janel Glantz, M.D., Radiology Department chair. "It will also improve our patients' experience by reducing MRI scan times and providing more comfortable wide-bore scanning capability."
"With this investment, we will be able to provide the most advanced and highest-quality patient care, access, imaging capability and interpretations for our region," says Paul Mueller, M.D., regional vice president.
